If what the Old Farmer's Almanac has to say about December is correct, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

The publication always makes predictions for the month ahead using their long-term forecast method. According to their website, here's what we can expect in December:

  • From December 1st through the 4th, we will see sunshine and mild conditions.
  • For a good chunk of the month - December 5th through the 17th - we will continue to see mild conditions with some snow showers throughout that period.
  • Sunshine returns on December 18th through the 24th. Conditions will remain mild.
  • From December 25th through the end of the month, we can expect snow showers but nothing intense or severe.

Our average temperature will also be 24 degrees, which is eight degrees above average. We will see below average precipitation as well.

While this is exciting news, the Old Farmer's Almanac didn't quite get things right for November. I'm hoping this time around, they do!
